Dell Mobile Connect looks to streamline mobile working

Dell Mobile Connect

When it comes to Android users, they can read and respond to texts, make calls and run apps using the software, which will also show notifications for other apps.

Engadget reports that Dell's new machines, including the flagship XPS, will come preloaded with a piece of software called Mobile Connect. What's more, compatible Android devices and all iOS devices can take advantage of a screencasting feature that allows them to beam apps to a target PC. You need to install the Dell / Alienware Mobile Connect Windows 10 app installed on the parent PC and then the Mobile Connect app installed onto your Android smartphone. You can use your PC's mouse and keyboard as input devices (like with DeskDock), or have your phone's screen displayed as a window (like with TeamViewer or Vysor). The company explained that Mobile Connect uses both Bluetooth and WiFi for its syncing magic.

There are plenty of options for controlling your phone using a PC. The Mobile Connect is a wireless mobile-PC integration software that users will find pre-installed on their Dell XPS, Inspiron, Alienware, and Vostro laptops that will be available this year.

When you're able to answer calls and text messages directly from your computer, it's definitely a huge convenience because you don't have to pick up your phone.

"Your connection is only accessible on the PC when you are present and the communication remains secure through a point-to-point connection, never going through the internet or Wi-Fi routers", Dell said on its website. "Mobile Connect could end up being a feature that draws people to Dell laptops in the future, that is, until other companies start offering something as capable". Your phone should be running at least iOS 10 or Android 5.0 in order to move forward.
